What is a crosslinker?

- Jan 05, 2021-

Crosslinking agent is a kind of small-molecule compound, the molecular weight is generally between 200-600, with 2 or more reactive ends for special groups such as amino, sulfhydryl, etc., and can be coupled with 2 or more molecules separately Linking these molecules together.

In life science research, the clever use of cross-linking agents can make many breakthroughs.

· The widest variety and 86 mature products can meet various coupling needs.

 It can be covalently cross-linked under physiological conditions, and the cross-linking reaction is quick and easy.

· A variety of reactive groups are available, and the reaction direction can be either specific or non-specific.

· Contains inter-arms of different lengths, effectively reducing steric hindrance.

· Some products have built-in cleavable groups, which greatly enhances the flexibility of crosslinking agent application.

Application of crosslinking agent

Cross-linking agents have been widely used: cell membrane structure research, protein structure research, protein interaction research, biological missile research, the connection of carrier proteins and haptens, the immobilization of proteins or other molecules, antibody labeling, labeling Transfer, the connection of protein and nucleic acid.
